A total of 30,000 tickets will be available at prices ranging from NIS 240 to NIS 490, local producer Shuki Weiss revealed.
Weiss was quick to point out that tickets for the show, which is set to take place on May 29, are much cheaper than the last time Madonna performed in Israel in September 2009 when the cheapest tickets were NIS 490.
The Queen of Pop will perform on a stage especially designed for her world tour that will be packed up after the Ramat Gan show and taken to the 50 other cities around the world where she will perform, including Abu Dhabi, London and New York. The set will include a satellite stage that will protrude 40 meters out into the center of the field where adoring fans will be able to get up close and personal with the legendary pop singer.
The stage will be six stories high so that even fans sitting far away will be able to see the Queen of Pop perform her best hits, Weiss explained. 'Fans can expect to see some of the most state-of-the art sound, lighting and stage production,' he added.
The Material Girl will arrive in Israel two weeks before the concert, accompanied by an entourage of over 300 people, in order to carry out some intensive last-minute rehearsals. While she will visit certain sites and take advantage of being in Israel, Weiss explained that Madonna is taking the show seriously and plans to spend most of her time preparing for the the big event.
'It isn't even a regular visit anymore when she comes,' the local producer explained to the media. 'It's as if she is the process of making aliya.'
Hundreds of foreign journalists will travel to Israel to see the Queen of Pop kick off her world tour and will follow her every step of the way.
Even Madonna's world tour could not escape the media frenzy surrounding a possible strike on Iran. When asked by a journalist how a strike on Iran and its consequences would affect the show, Weiss put everyone's mind at ease by replying: 'We live in this county and life goes on. I hope there are no surprises!'
A number of travel companies will offer special packages for tourists who want to enjoy the event and combine a holiday in Israel.
While regular tickets are relatively cheap, VIP packages range from NIS 1,500 to NIS 2,900, which will include premium seats, exclusive merchandise and more. For more information on VIP tickets visit www.VIPNation.com
In Israel, tickets will go on sale beginning Friday, February 10 and will be available at Castel (www.TKTS.co.il *8965) and Eventim.co.il *9066).
